website consultation

A website consultation is a great way for you to get the expertise of a designer and triumph over your hurdles!

Simply supply your website URL and areas of concern. Then I'll spend a pre-agreed amount of time studying your site and writing up professional reccommendations - as well as practical, actionable steps that you can implement yourself.

Each consultation is set at a flat fee based on the size of the website, the assistance needed, and the required turn around time. Consultations can cover a variety of areas. See the list below for details.

To start the process, fill out this brief form.

Template Selection

Having trouble choosing the right template for your site? Is your template working against you rather than for you?

Need to create that polished, professional look or stand out from the crowd? Would help with colors, images, or design in general be a God-send?

Mobile Design

Yearning for guidance on how to provide an exceptional mobile experience? After all, the web is now accessed primarily on mobile.

User Experience

Are visitors having a tough time finding information on your website? Are you unsure how to organize your site in a way that's user-friendly?

Other Issues

Don't see your exact issue listed here? That's okay - a consultation may still help!

Linda Kelso

"When I started my business, I had a small budget. I also work out of my home so my website is my storefront. I knew my site needed to be modern, beautiful, and professional - but I had a problem. Even though I knew enough to get my site up and running, I couldn't seem to acheive the look that I wanted.

Jenn to the rescue! Through her website critique service, she gave me tons of practical, actionable recommendations that took my site from "meh" to "wow!" I created my website, but Jenn made it shine! Every time someone tells me how pretty my site looks, I know it's because of Jenn and her crazy awesome skills. Having a polished, professional website definitely helps to inspire confidence in potential clients."

Design Like a Pro: It’s All About Problem-Solving

Want to know a secret? Web and graphic design is first and foremost about problem-solving. Whether you’re designing a website, brochure, or social media campaign, each project has specific goals. The key to success is to make design choices based on those goals.

In this presentation, I:

  • Explain how to approach design projects with a problem-solving mindset - and why it’s so important to your business.
  • Share key questions to ask yourself at the start of every project in order to help clarify your goals.
  • Reveal the system of how to approach design decisions based on those goals.

Logo Design 101: And the Tips That Will Keep You Sane

Designing a logo can be one of the most difficult tasks for a new business. How do you design something that will represent your brand online, in print, and everywhere in-between? How can you make it look professional? And what technical requirements should you be aware of?

I will answer these questions and more! Learn firsthand:

  • What programs you should use to create your logo and why.
  • Common design mistakes and how to avoid them.
  • Standard logo layouts that you can choose from.
  • What your logo should convey and the impact of design choices

Website Success: Designing for the User

Creating a website is one thing. But creating a website that really succeeds...well, that can feel as elusive as a unicorn! How can you help ensure that people come, stay, and buy your products and services? How should your website be organized? What things are you missing or doing incorrectly without even knowing it?

In this talk, I reveal:

  • What a user-friendly experience is and why it’s so important to your website’s success.
  • How your inner perspective of your business can be unconsciously affecting your design decisions.
  • Design pitfalls to avoid so that your site isn’t getting in its own way.
  • Practical testing methods to help determine how your visitors are actually using your site - and how you can improve it.

"For 10 years I relied on Jenn's expertise as my web designer and, more recently, as my branding consultant. She is creative, efficient, highly-skilled, and always cutting edge."

Lora Innes

"Aside from Jenn's obvious skills - clean design, functionality, a knowledge of her craft - she also has all the qualities necessary to make working with her not only a smart business decision, but an absolute pleasure.

Communication with her was never a problem - she's quick to respond to emails and calls. She was able to help me with suggestions to improve my site's organization and functionality, and as someone with no knowledge of web design, that was a great relief! She did a great job, gave me exactly what I wanted and did it in a time frame that made my head spin!"
